Mourners who queued all night without wristbands vented their frustrations at police after being denied access to the Queen.

In the early hours of Monday, police prevented dozens of mourners from getting any closer to Westminster Hall at the entrance to Victoria Tower Gardens next to Lambeth Bridge.

Albert, who queued without a wristband at 10pm last night, was one of those denied entry to Westminster.

The queue for the queen to lie in state closes to the public after four long days.

He said the government’s official live feed had not been updated to say the wristbands would no longer be issued.

“The communication was terrible,” Albert said after standing in central London for more than six hours.

He added: “There were loads of people who entered the official queue on the website but never got their wristbands.”

“And in turn they didn’t give us any information – just to show us disrespect when we eventually got here (Lambeth Bridge).”
